Dear Daphne – 4 Years

We celebrated your fourth birthday on Saturday. Technically, your birthday was on Sunday, but we decided to rent a couple cabanas at Schlitterbahn, a water park down in Galveston, and it was easier if we did so on …

Beach Follow-Up

I’d kinda been holding off on posting until the “official” beach pictures arrived. Had I known it would take almost a month, I wouldn’t have waited. Regardless, here are a few of the pics that came in. We’ll …

Bolivar, Bolivar…
